Paula + William // Holy Name Cathedral + The Drake Hotel


Paula and William met eight years ago while attending Stanford University. Both of them grew up in New England, went to college in California and now call Chicago their home. Paula is a MD/PhD student and William is a pediatrics resident.

For the proposal, William decorated their Chicago apartment with orange balloons. It was around Christmas and Paula’s birthday. When she returned to their apartment, Paula says she noticed their normal Christmas music wasn’t playing. Stevie Wonder’s “You are the Sunshine of my Life” replaced all of the seasonal tunes but she didn’t think much of it. Then, William asked Paula to come to the window where he had strung Christmas lights that said: “Marry me?” At first, Paula said she thought it was a train but after she figured it out, William got down on one knee and asked Paula to spend the rest of her life with him!

Amy + Juan // Chicago Wedding


Sometimes, when you least expect it, love just happens. Juan had been working at Best Buy in their photography department. Amy was hired for seasonal work as a bilingual (Spanish & English) associate. During a new employee orientation, the two instantly became friends. They lost touch but reconnected when Amy was looking to purchase a new camera. Six years after they first met, Juan Proposed to Amy during a family Christmas gathering. The two are very much in love with each other. One of our (many) favorite moments from this wedding happened when Juan promised everyone at the reception that he would spend the rest of his life doing whatever he could to make Amy happy.

As a side note, we always love hearing about how our clients find us. Amy was friends with one of our previous clients, Vicky + Eric. When Amy first saw our wedding videography work, she wasn’t engaged but said to herself that whenever she became engaged, she wanted to have Delack Media Group film her wedding day. Amy and her Mom frequently visited our wedding blog, sharing a few tears and tissues. When Juan proposed, she contacted us right away to check availability. We couldn’t have been more thrilled to film our very first completely Spanish wedding ceremony for this wonderful couple.
